COME SEE WHAT'S NEW AT MATRE GALLERY!
So what's new at Matre Gallery? A lot!
If you haven’t visited us recently, we hope that you will find the time to visit our new gallery space on Miami Circle. And if you’re in town over the July 4th holiday weekend, our Open House on Saturday afternoon from 2 - 5 p.m. would be the perfect time!
Jacquelynn Barli is a recent graduate of the Ringling College of Art & Design, and we are thrilled that she has joined the Matre Gallery staff!
Matre Gallery welcomes California artist Tracey Sylvester Harris Harris and Charlotte artist Trip Park to our roster. Both artists made their gallery debut in This Way To The Beach, and have made an immediate impression on visitors and collectors alike.

Matre Gallery is excited that three artists have returned to the gallery roster. San Francisco artist Marshall Crossman made quite an impact a few years ago, including a solo exhibition of her coastal inspired figurative paintings. Atlanta photographer and artist Deborah Llewellyn returns with her distinctive photo-encaustic works. Deborah had a solo show in January 2013 at our Dutch Valley location. Tampa artist Shane Pendley showed briefly at the gallery a few years ago, and his sophisticated works feature a mix of botanical and abstract forms.
Marshall Crossman | Beach Series No. 1 | oil on canvas | 36 x 36 inches
Deborah Llewellyn | Venetian Blush | photo encaustic on panel | 58 x 40 inches
Shane Pendley | Chapter 12, Wear Your Best: Thursday | acrylic on paper | 30 x 40 inches
New Works by Plaid Columns!
Plaid Columns, the collaborative duo of Evan Jones and Robert Matre, has created a new series of small paintings. These are fun works that also have a hip presentation. This new series features works that are 12 x 18 inches or smaller on wood panels that "float" over the attached stretcher bars.

Congratulations To Evan Jones!
At the beginning of 2013, gallery owner Robert Matre and artist Evan Jones discussed goals for the new year, and one of those goals quickly came to fruition. Evan Jones’ first museum show opens July 10, 2014, The Albany Museum of Art. The show is titled Epic of Flight, and will be in the Evans Sporting and Wildlife Gallery. The exhibition continues through November 30th, 2014.
